Hello all - new(ish) to this, had fish as a kid but not for 30-odd years, just set up a 40g planted, have a 20g long cycling.  Had a rough start, lost two fish and four snails (in my defense, all from Petco), but I think I’m on the right track now.  

The currently running tank houses two fancy goldfish, one rubberlip pleco, a nerite snail, and a small clan of bladder snails (kept small by the C085EBDF-86EB-4407-AB3F-81EE228EC733.jpeg.41af9ffa1a70127031390e9077b3f1af.jpegE7B9E8DF-6C81-4A2C-B886-37588F074EA7.jpeg.b184ff9f914e471e761d66bdaea1b25e.jpeg



(I don’t have a good picture of the nerite snail, it mostly hangs out imitating the gravel)

Welcome to the forum!

I wonder if a flagfish would play nice with goldfish. I bet it would be pretty happy to much on that algae you've got going on.

Do your goldfish eat the duckweed?

I’m actually worried there might not be enough algae to maintain a food source for the pleco and snails long term, once the pleco grows up, so no more algae eaters here.  And yes, the goldfish love the duckweed.
